Lacy Flower Crown · Free Crochet Pattern

by - March 20, 2021


Dear fellow crocheters, 

I'm really excited to share with you this beautiful headband design that I created for my daughter!  I am so happy with how it turned out.  



This Headband Design is...

  • Quick to work up
  • Beginner-friendly 
  • Minimalist
  • Vintage
  • Romantic
  • Adjustable to any head size 
  • Versatile and can be made with different types of yarn weights, fibers, colors, and crochet hook sizes 
  • Oh, and I mustn't forget to mention...it comes with a full video tutorial!



As you can probably tell from my growing number of baby patterns, I just *love* making accessories for my little girl.



This flower crown design really gives off a romantic vibe with its cluster of roses in soft, pastel pink.  I also love its simple, minimalist, and vintage flair.  The girly-girl in me is seriously considering making another one for myself as well, because who doesn't like matching Mommy-and-Me accessories with their little one?!  

I do have to say, though... I don't think I can wear it as well as my little Lena Rose.  She really is a sweet Rosie Bud (that's my mama's nickname for her) in this crown!  



I also have to add -- this headband makes a beautiful last-gift for so many occasions!  Baby showers, birthdays, Mother’s Day, Christmas, holidays...  It’s also suitable as a fast and easy product to stock for craft fairs, or as photo props for photographers.

HEADBAND

Use the 5mm hook with light weight (3) yarn.
  1. Make an even number of chains to match the length that you’d like for your headband.  (For reference, I made 64 chains to reach a 12” length for my baby girl’s head size.) 
    Note: Use the Hat Sizing & Measurements Reference Chart for average head circumferences of different age groups. 
  2. Ch 2 more. 
  3. In 3rd ch from hook, insert a hdc. (Sk a st, sc+dc in next st) across. Insert hdc in last st. 
  4. Ch 1, insert a sc in the side of the headband. Then insert sc across each of the stitches along the bottom of the headband. Insert a sc in the other side of the headband. 
  5. FO with a long tail to use as a “tying strap.” 
  6. Attach yarn to the other end of the headband, making sure it’s as long as the other side.  Tie it securely, then fasten off and weave in the end.
